I was going to make a comment about how I live in an area with a nice transit program, with only a few flaws. Then I kept going, more flaws than qualities. Flaws I face daily, sometimes compounded by human error or technical breakdown.
What I mean is, let’s fix the bus system.
I am reminded of a day in Ecuador when I suggested a barricade or at least some orange cones would be good to put up around the large, deep hole in the sidewalk. The response I got was, “Mary will protect us.”
It’s a little bit unfair to mock a seriously impoverished country for not protecting its citizens against a danger they can easily avoid with even minimal attention.
